AMANDA:  CLEVER SPROUTS 

As an experienced Primary School teacher and mother of two, I know first-hand just how tricky the transition from ‘Kindie’ to ‘Big School’ can be. Research has also found that a child under 5 years learns at an exponential rate. I have developed the Clever Sprouts Early Learning Program with these two things in mind, and I encourage to you and your child to join in this amazing adventure.

Clever Sprouts is a brain-based learning program for pre-schoolers that teaches social skills, and basic literacy and numeracy skills in a supportive and relaxed environment. The weekly lessons last for  50 minutes, are fast-paced and caters for a variety of personalities, abilities and learning styles.  I would love your child to try out a session on any of our available days.
